After graduating from culinary school, Chef Bill cooked at the original Ritz-Carlton/Boston, and later worked at Harbor Sweets, makers of handmade chocolates in Salem, MA. He started his personal chef business in September 2001. Since then, he’s provided cooking demonstrations and lessons for Whole Foods, Stonewall Kitchen, Monitor Group, and numerous businesses, schools and non-profit organizations. His audiences have ranged from just a handful of people to hundreds. In addition, he’s appeared weekly, for over two years, on Mass Appeal, a live daily lifestyle show on WWLP, the NBC affiliate in Springfield, MA.
In 2014, Storey Publishing published three books by Chef Bill: Knife Skills, Making and Using Vinegar, and How to Make Chocolate Candies. He is writing two more books to be published in 2015 and 2016, including one for the American Diabetes Association.
Chef Bill lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife Karen, and Cosmo, their retired racing greyhound. He can also be found on his bicycle, preparing for the 2016 Pan Mass Challenge. This will be his 18th PMC, which raises money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
